In advance of the +Austin Food Blogger Alliance  Byte of Texas conference this weekend, I was recently interviewed by +Lisa Rawlinson of Full and Content about being a professional food photographer. Read all about a typical day in the life (hint, it's more like "week in the life"), gain some beginner's tips, and read about my favorite photography gear all on Full and Content. Hope to see you at the conference this weekend!
 
Recently I sat down with professional food photographer Melissa Skorpil of Skorpil Photography and tapped her for tips and insights. Here's what she had to say:

I love the challenge of photographing people AND food. Check out blog post on a recent #foodphotography shoot we did for Green Mesquite Barbecue's promotional mailer and website. We had such fun working with the employees at Green Mesquite and thanks so much to my assistant Rachelle Bendixen for helping to direct the models and of course master #foodstylist +Kristina Wolter for styling the barbecue and catering menu.

Many, many thanks for Rachelle’s hard work and talent in putting together this video. Check it out!
